This section of the COSSAP Online Learning Center highlights and shares the efforts of exemplary peers, programs, and strategies to combat the opioid, stimulant, and substance abuse epidemic. The presentation modes and approaches serve as virtual opportunities to engender a sense of collegial connection and community. Interviews with program leaders, subject experts, grant managers, clients, and key stakeholders are designed to create awareness about program services, generate ideas for participants to adopt and customize, and serve as springboards for additional, complementary training materials and resources, as applicable.
As peer practitioners move into a variety of roles in the criminal justice system, programs need to carefully plan and prepare to integrate peer recovery support services (PRSS) into their portfolio of services. This course offers ways to think about adopting and integrating PRSS into criminal justice settings, by identifying essential elements of comprehensive programs, essential integration processes, key program design factors, and drivers of success. While the core elements remain the same, PRSS programs will vary from intercept to intercept and site to site; this course will help you to develop the best program for your context and setting.View the Site Visit Videos
